A former IRS agent now an agent of joy, Kelly Epperson helps people fulfill their dream of becoming an author. Kelly has written 25 books, some for NY Times best selling authors, one that sold 3 million copies. A weekly newspaper columnist since 2001, Kelly also serves as a judge for the Erma Bombeck essay contest.

Effective communication – be it on the page, on the stage, or in any of our interactions – is simply about connection. Kelly demystifies the writing process and shows you exactly how to connect, be it a book, a blog, or a newsletter. Many people have a fear of “public writing” and Kelly reveals how to bust through that block. Writing really can be a joy, and can bring you what you want – clients, cash, or cases of your favorite gum. (Yes, it happened.)

A member of the Association for Applied & Therapeutic Humor, Founder of the Happiness Club of Loves Park, Book Coach for the Larry Winget & Suzanne Evans high-level mentor program, Kelly delights in bringing her clients to deeper clarity and confidence.
